If you’ve stumbled here because you’ve experienced a loss, I’m so very sorry.
My loss is fairly recent, and I’m early in my journey. New facets of my windy, brutal walk continue to reveal themselves. I see some light these days, but also still experience periods of intense darkness – moments that take my breath away – moments that swiftly return me to my darkest hours.
I’m lucky enough to have already benefited greatly from connecting with others who’ve experienced losses similar to mine – some of the smartest, most courageous, most inspirational people I’ve ever met. Some of them live down the road, and some live in other countries. In the information age, no one is required to walk this path alone.
If you’d like to contact me, reach out! Follow me, or leave a comment. I read all comments, and I will respond to you. Comments inspire me to keep blogging, and they make me feel like Matthew’s life matters.
If you’re too nervous to comment, email me! If you’re shy, don’t be – just do it. Some of the strongest connections I’ve made have been through random emails I initially felt super awkward about sending.
